SOURCE: 1995 mitsubishi pajero glow plugs

When you turn on the key, a relay engages for a few seconds and heats up the glow plugs. It sounds like the relay is not passing current, which could indicate either corroded contacts, or a bad relay all together. I would guess the former since your panel light indicates the relay is functioning correctly. I would suggest replacing the relay, or possibly if you feel comfortable with it, disassemble the relay and clean the contacts.

SOURCE: LIGHT ON DASH FOR GLOW PLUG NO LONGER COMING ON

this sounds like the glow plug relay is u/s or stuck, locate the relay in your fues box and give it a tap or remove it and replace it, it might have just come loose, if this does not work it will need replacing...hope that helps

Starting problem on kangoo


Check the big fuses in the power distribution box under the bonnet ,this is a UK reg vehicle kept outside no doubt and these fuse connections under the bonnet do get damp ,if still no joy for whatever reason then but a manual push button starter switch and wire them in direct manual overide ,power to switch then direct to the glow plugs ,so when the light dont come push button in for 10secs and no more and away you go,Clean the big fuses and spray with some 3in1 or a oil can with engine oil not that wd40 and lubricate the connections where the fuses push into.

Won't start but cranks has 300k miles. Check fuel pump working, replace glow plugs, checked fuses and relays, fuel pump won't come on but works hooked it direct to battery, wait to start light does not...


If you can't pull the codes from the pcm it has either died or lost it's ground assuming it has power. I would try to get a wiring diagram and check both the power and the ground for the computer itself, because it is what turns on the pump and the wait to start light.

will try to help. your engine glow plugs are most likely the problem, when youcycle the key on, it says wait to start on dash panel right? it means it, the glow plugs preheat the cylinder to fire the fuel when it turns over. you should heva an electrical plug under the front part of engine , the plugin heats the oil during cold weather to insure a smoother start for the motor. i do suggest you use anti-gel in your fuel and please follow the instructions on the bottle that you can purchase at any auto parts store. replace your glow plugs[ they are easy to replace] they are located above the cylinders almost like spark plugs in a gasoline engine. only smallet in size. if you are mechanically inclined and can replace spark plugs in a v8 motor, you can do this yourself, but be prepaired to pay $100.00 for the glow plugs and i also suggest that after replacement, you wait for the wait to start light goes off on dash before you attempt to start the engine. it's a very common mistake. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com if this helps a 4thumbs up would be great

2001 DODGE DIESEL FIRST THING IN MORNING VERY HARD START. BUT AT START IT RUNS JUST FINE . DON'T THINK ITS GLOW PLUG PROBLEM WHATS BETWEEN THE ON SWITCH AND GLOW PLUGS WOULD THIS PRODUCE A CODE?


you can use a 12v test light or multi meter to check
for power at each glow plug during the cycle if you
have power you can do a visual check pull a plug
with power wire on have a helper turn key on use a
clip lead to ground the plug (hold plug with pliers)
if it works the element will get HOT.
if that checks out you can also try changing to a lighter oil a fresh fuel filter and everyones favorite
plug me in. hope this helps good luck.

Where can I find the schematics for a 1995 Ford F250 7 3 liter turbo diesel? We're able to start the truck on ether, but she won't continue to run. We're guessing it's the fuel pump, possibly the filter or...


drain water from filter. change filter. prime system.
If it doesn't fix it, check glow plugs to be sure they are preheating combustion chamber.

Fuel Supply System The fuel system consists of the following three major subsystems:
  • Fuel supply system
  • Injection control pressure system
  • Fuel injector assembly
The fuel transfer pump is a camshaft-driven, two-stage diaphragm/piston pump mounted in the engine "V".
Fuel is drawn from the fuel tank through the primary filter by the diaphragm section of the transfer pump. Pressurized fuel (approximately 28 kPa [ 4 psi]) is supplied to the secondary filter and returned to the second stage of the transfer pump. The piston-actuated second stage of the transfer pump supplies 276-345 kPa (40-50 psi) of fuel to the rear of each cylinder head where it flows to a fuel rail machined in each head.
Drillings in the cylinder head route the fuel to the plunger area of the fuel injector which can pressurize the fuel to 124,110 kPa (18,000 psi) for delivery to the combustion chamber via a conventional nozzle/valve tip arrangement.
Return fuel is plumbed from fittings at the front of each cylinder head to a junction block which contains a piston/spring type regulator valve that maintains pressure to approximately 414 kPa (60 psi). A de-aeration bleed orifice between the fuel filter and the regulator block vents air trapped in the fuel filter. Most of the fuel from the regulator is recirculated to the inlet of the piston (high pressure) stage of the transfer pump. Fuel return to the tank is limited to 30-38 liters (8-10 gallons) an hour through the use of a 0.0008mm (.020-inch) orifice. This prevents the fuel from overheating in the tank.
---------------------------------------
Injector Driver Module The injector driver module (IDM) is used in conjunction with the PCM to sequentially control power to the fuel injectors on the 7.3L DI turbo diesel engine. The PCM processor generates two digital control signals for the IDM: fuel delivery control signal (FDCS) and cylinder identification (CID). The FDCS signal is used by the IDM to control injection timing and injection duration. The CID provides synchronization to the engine's first and fifth injector (firing order). The IDM verifies that FDCS and CID occur at valid timing intervals. The IDM outputs an electronic feedback (EF) signal, to the PCM, which is a delayed mimic of the FDCS for verification. Selected diagnostic information is also passed to the PCM via the EF signal in run mode.
The IDM is a high-energy power supply which acts as an energy distributor to provide regulated injector energy and control to the unit fuel injectors, based on FDCS and CID commands from the PCM. All IDM components are solid state; there are no user serviceable parts or adjustments. The IDM internal power supply uses a DC-to-DC converter to boost the supply voltage (VBATT) up to 115V DC. This supply is required to overcome the initial impedance of the injectors, ensuring rapid turn on. There are two high side drivers, one for each bank (left and right cylinder bank), and eight low side drivers, one for each injector. One high and one low side must be turned on to energize an injector. Once synchronized with the PCM, the IDM will select the proper low side driver (enable) and control the corresponding high side driver to regulate the current to an injector.
Continuous and on-demand system diagnostic information is provided between the PCM processor and the IDM via the EF signal. During normal operation, the IDM can indicate to the PCM that an injector low side short to ground has been detected, or that the IDM has lost synchronization.
The IDM constantly performs self-diagnostics and also monitors the injector circuits for electrical faults. Any fault codes set are transmitted via the EF signal to the PCM during Key On/Engine Off On-Demand Self Test. If the PCM is unable to obtain diagnostic information from the IDM, DTC 1668 is set.
---------------------------------------------
Glow Plug Control Glow plugs are used to warm the cylinders to improve cold-engine starting. The PCM uses the engine oil temperature (EOT) sensor and barometric pressure (BARO) sensor to determine how long the glow plugs will be on. The PCM energizes the glow plugs longer if the engine is very cold or if the barometric pressure is low at high altitudes.
The PCM controls the relay that supplies power to the glow plugs with the glow plug control (GPC) signal. When the GPC signal is grounded by the PCM the relay closes, turning the glow plugs on.
The glow plugs are controlled by the following sequence:
  1. PCM energizes the glow plugs.
  1. The PCM energizes the glow plugs immediately after the ignition is placed in the ON position.
  1. The PCM then determines how long glow plugs will be on based on EOT sensor and the BARO sensor. The required time to warm up the cylinder decreases the engine oil temperature and barometric pressure increases at low altitudes.
  2. ------------------------------------------------------
Glow Plug Lamp Control The glow plug lamp (GPL) signal controls the WAIT TO START light located on the instrument panel. This light is used to indicate when to start the engine. The cylinders are being warmed by the glow plugs during and after this light is lit. The PCM energizes the glow plug lamp longer if the engine is very cold or if the barometric pressure is low.
When the GPL signal is brought low, the "Wait to Start" lamp is turned on.
The glow plug lamp is controlled by the following sequence:
  1. PCM lights the WAIT TO START light after a key on reset occurs.
The PCM determines the glow plug lamp activation time based on engine oil temperature, barometric pressure and battery voltage.
  1. PCM turns off the WAIT TO START light.
The glow plug lamp is turned off when the timer counts to the number of seconds specified by the PCM. The glow plugs will normally remain on longer than the "Wait to Start" lamp.

Won't Start & No glow Plug Light on Dash


I am with a similar problem...

After putting on a new sump i found that the starter motor would work cranking the engine but no power is going to the glow plugs. The light on the dash does not appear either.

The relay for the coils does click but that is the end of it. I have a suspission it is the imobiliser but after taking the battery on and off several times to reset... still nothing.

There is fuel, good battery (fully charged), fuel lines are clean pressurised...

Any ideas???

Get compression test. Make sure all valves are seating. Check injectors for fuel flow. If all elce fails. Move to a warm state. (Just kidding..!)

I have a citroen xantia 2.0 hdi,glow plug light goes out to quickly not on long enough,problem still there even after new glow plugs were fitted, would apreciate help thanks.


have you tried the glow plug relay? or if you have a test light see if theres power to glow plugs when light is on,should only light for 5 or so seconds.some of the newer hdi dont even use the glow plugs till temp is very cold,i have a 2006 2.0 hdi van and glow plug light only stays on for a second or so,and its been like that from new! is the problem just bad starting? and is it only when its cold? if you have a manual priming pump for fuel under bonnet,trying pumping before starting it could be fuel prob?ie air getting into fuel system
